What causes car to stall when it gets hot?

A car engine is made with many moving parts that fit together very precisely. When these parts get hot, they expand, but they do not all expand to exactly the same degree. So parts which fit in a certain temperature range, will cease to fit in a higher temperature range. That is why the car will stall if it gets too hot. If the radiator is working correctly, the engine will never get too hot.
